¿Will I lose all my progress if I ate bad/binged one day/week?
Today I went to my nutritionist, who I’ve been seeing since the beginning of february, when I was wieghing 90kg, last time I went was 3 weeks ago, 2 days before going into a quick “spring break/solving school things” trip. I was weighing 83kgs (in month and a half I lost around 7 kgs).
I spent 2 weeks without doing exercise, eating WHATEVER, and I’m not saying one or 2 days of junk food or so, I’m saying my friends and I enjoy eating out and it was a mix between pizza, sushi, daily ice cream, hard alcohol drinking, chips, pasta, cake, etc. for 2 weeks, + ZERO exercise, not even one day I worked out.
You wanna know how much I “ruined” my progress? I gained 300 grams of weight, and went up on a little more body fat, and gained a little less than 1cm of waist, that’s it, and the waist/weight thing could totally be that I was bloated and didn’t pooped before going with the nutritionist.
After one month and a half of working out 5-6 times a week and eating healthy nutritious foods 90% of the time, 2 entire weeks of doing the oposite didn’t set me back to square one, they just gave me one cm more of waist and a very small percentage of higher body fat (same muscle mass tho). Of course, If I keep eating like the past few weeks for the next few months then I would go back to square one, but that’s not the case.
So please, stop worrying about one day, one week, or whatever of “bad eating” or eating 4 slices of pizza for dinner 3 days in a row, you breathe, you make peace with it, you enjoy the amazing taste of indulging yourself, and you continue your journey, you kick ass at the gym and you found a balance in your life.
Last month, we hired this cat who is supposed to help us with all the financial issues. He is good at maths and works hard (we have built him a small office in the basement of the sentô, next to the big stove). He has a crush on sushi so we pay him in food.
